Bonnie made beautiful wedding cakes and spectacular giant birthday cookies. She also had a talent for making jewelry. Bonnie loved going out to eat, Dr. Pepper, chocolate cake, and Barry Manilow. But her greatest love and joy was spending time with her grandchildren, all of which adored her. The grandchildren remember having tea parties, playing pretend store, building blocks, making crafts, and riding the bus with her.
Bonnie is survived by her children, Jeff Benson of Colorado, Anne Benson of Utah, Jamie (Mikkael) Strubhar of Utah, brother Lester Putney of Oregon, 10 grandchildren, and many nieces and nephews. She was proceeded in death by her parents, one brother, and one sister.
